My husband, two young kids and I spent a wonderful week at Danny's. From the moment we arrived, till we left we were treated like friends. I was very impressed with the family cabin. It is rustic but spacious, with steps down to the beach and the sounds of the waves at night. But what really sets Danny's apart is the people!! My children loved visiting with Sakee, Toopoe and Mayhan and my youngest son is still asking to see 'Mickey'. The village children are wonderful and we spent many hours playing with them and learning new songs. We were fortunate enough to be invited to a party in the village and my husband enjoyed drinking kava and talking with the men. We went to visit the local school with 'Mickey' (Toopoe) and the children ran to say hello to us. It was really interesting to see what they are learning and heartwarming be welcomed with songs. Mickey was kind enough to look after our kids while we went snorkeling on the nearby reef, we saw many fish and a reef shark. I could write so much more, this was an absolutely amazing family experience. We had a really wonderful week at Danny's, we were truly welcomed into the village and the whole family had a fantastic time. I have to point out Dannys is not for everyone, if you don't like roughing it or cannot survive without wifi-- this is not the place for you. If you are open to new experiences and don't mind a few bugs, some rocks on the beach and making new friends-- Go to Dannys and tell Mickey we say "hi". Hopefully we will be back again sometime soon!
